Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles Recipe

I’ve so been trying to keep up lately! But, with the blog, training, taking classes, creating new websites, working on very big upcoming projects, and just life in general, several things have fallen by the wayside. However, with me adopting a ketogenic diet, I have had to spend a little more time creating recipes that fit into my new way of eating.  This Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles recipe is one of them.

When I first created Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp, I thought it was going to be really low in carbs. Then, when I took each ingredient, and broke them up by macros, I discovered it wasn’t as low carb as I thought it would be. At 19 grams of net carbs per serving, I had already used up the bulk of my 25 grams of allowed net carbs. Now, I could have split the dish into more servings; but, seriously, that would not have been enough to fill me up.  So, I am not calling this recipe one of my keto or low carb recipes. Although, it is one of my yummiest!

I hope you enjoy my Paleo Spicy Cashew Shrimp with Yam Noodles.  If you can’t find No Oodles brand, you could always use another brand of shirataki noodles, or even zoodles (zucchini noodles).  I like that the No Oodles brand lists only yam flour and lime juice as ingredients.  Plus, there is only 1 gram of carbs per serving!

Next week, I’m going to try to get two posts out for you.  I have several in the works on topics including the ketogenic (very low carb, moderate protein, high fat) diet, the current attacks on the AIP, and my review of Mark Sisson‘s new book, Primal Endurance.  Hopefully, I will be rolling those out in the next few weeks, along with more recipes, of course.

As always, I wish you good health………and, good food!
